Just a quick catch up on last week and how excited I am to now know the beginnings of how to shear professionally! Osa even came with me on Friday and had a chance to exercise her natural herding instinct, and watch other dogs work.

Lots more shearing happened as the week went on, and on the last day I asked if I would be allowed to take home one of the fleeces I had sheared! AH how fun! I’m not sure what could be better than spinning and knitting up a fleece that you sheared!!

I enjoyed the week so much and the amazing group of people I was surrounded by. I would recommenced this class to anyone who wants to get their butt kicked! We were even presented with a little certificate for each of us, and we got into the local paper!

I have walked away with so much more information and knowledge on sheep, shearing, and some brilliant memories, topped off a wealth of contacts… I’m all the closer to my sheepy dreams…

…and as soon as my handpiece returns from the menders I will be ready to shear your flock! Watch this space…
